Savoldo, Giovanni Girolamo (c. 1480 - 1548)
Christ with Joseph of ArimatheaDate: c. 1525
Theme: New Testament
Technique: Oil on wood
Museum: Cleveland Museum of Art
Location: Cleveland, OH, USA
Former title: The Dead Christ with Joseph of Arimathea,
Size: 105cm x 191.8cm,
Notes: After the Crucifixion, Joseph of Arimathea obtained permission to bury Christâ€™s body in Josephâ€™s own tomb. Aside from an amorphous, cloudy sky, Savoldo eliminated the background entirely and reduced the narrative to two monumental figures, brought to the front of the picture plane. These qualities surely had a great impact on Caravaggio, who initially trained in Northern Italy, where Savoldo spent his career. This work originally hung over a large altarpiece, which explains the unusual perspective, the panelâ€™s horizontal shape, and the figuresâ€™ position above the viewer.
